a point? >> well, i think they definitely a point, neil. economics is a very dynamic social science. there is a latin phrase that means, all things being the same. the democratic policy approach is everything's the same. we can increase tax rateses or in france, we can increase them to 75% and everything else will be the same. but that's not how it works. it's a very dynamic world, where incentives mean something and punishments mean something. so when someone says, we are going to take in california, as mickelson said, we are going to be taking 60-odd percent of your income, or in france, the state's taking 75% of your income, people with the means to move will say, there has to be a place that would be happier to have me and would not -- >> neil: that has been nevada for a lot of californians. there has been a money flight from california for sometime now. mickelson put a face to it. he has dialed that back, checking in with sponsors who didn't share that view. or maybe he wasn't supposed to. but he dialed it back. and sarkozy has his own tax issues and there may be more to the st
